COVID-19 has made an unprecedented impact all over the world. Doctors, nurses, clinicians, and first responders are working overtime to combat this pandemic and care for our citizens.
In addition to the impact on our healthcare system, Nashville's restaurant industry is struggling to stay alive. Restaurants have been mandated to completely transform their businesses and only offer curbside takeaway & delivery. Thousands of restaurant industry workers, who live off tips, are without jobs in Tennessee and struggling to pay their bills. The overall goal of our initiative is to spread the love to as many healthcare professionals and first responders as possible, while also supporting as many restaurants as possible. The more money raised, the more restaurants, industry jobs and more importantly, lives you can save.
What is better than supporting local businesses while also giving back to the clinicians who are on the frontlines working hard to save lives to beat COVID-19 one patient at a time? Support your local restaurants while also fueling the brave heroes who wake up every day, leave their own families, to save yours!
